 Drunken Carpenter Accidentally Cuts Off His Own Penis During DIY

A Brit carpenter, who tried doing a DIY job while drunk, is said to have cut off his own penis in the process.

Stuart Keen, 54, suffered horrific injuries after he cut himself with the saw he was using to cut wood for a cabinet he was making in his home workshop.


"Help me - I'm bleeding to death," the Telegraph quoted him as having told the emergency services operator.

When the police and ambulance crews rushed to Keen's home in Wantage, Oxfordshire, they found him and the severed penis in the bath, and immediately took him to the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford in a serious but not life-threatening condition.

Doctors have managed to reattach the organ, and said that he was in a "stable condition".

"Stuart had a very nasty accident with a saw but he is recovering now," his mother Edna, 84, said.

"He suffered tissue damage and had surgery to stitch him up which, I understand, was successful.

"I have spoken to him and he is quite embarrassed about the whole incident. I was in Somerset when it happened and got a call from the hospital.

"Hopefully he will be home next week and be able to get back to work which he loves.

"Stuart is a carpenter and uses sharp and sometimes dangerous tools.

"This was an unfortunate accident but these things happen all the time to people in his profession," she added.

A spokesman for the South Central Ambulance Service said that paramedics had waited for police support because the patient was drunk, and a sharp blade had been used.

A hospital spokesman said that the man remained in a stable condition after surgeons had carried out an operation to reattach the penis.
